EasyC v1 beginner question

Hi guys,
I just bought a vex kit on ebay and it included the original easyc v1 software(which I know is ~ 5 years old).

I have been playing around with it and I am wondering if there is a way that I can program a motor to move when one of the buttons on the back of the transmitter(ch. 5 or 6) is pushed. I tried using the GetRxinput and the different values (0, 127 and 255) are seen on the terminal- so I know the transmitter works. When I try programming motor 1 to move when the upper left button is pressed (see picture) the motor moves once I press the button, and then a second later it starts going and does not stop spinning (regardless of pressing the button). I would like the motor to turn when the button is pressed and stop when its not, and do this an infinite number of times.

I know this is probably a quick programming fix, but could you look at the code in the picture and tell me what I’m doing wrong?


The code looks ok try putting a print to screen in the if and else and see whats happening. You can also just use the Joystick to Motor block and that will do the same as your code.
